Kiss My Sass
Cobra Starship Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

They say that kid he's got

I'm bringing sassy back,
And everything that you thought you can't forget
Cause y'all know nothing but my name
And I don't wanna hear
About people I don't know
Not you, not him, not her, no

You only see what I let you see,
Nothing less, nothing more
What you say is nothing new to me
Honestly

They say that kid he's got soul
I'm everywhere that you go
And I've been there, seen that, and I ain't taking you home
No-o-o

Oh

And I ain't gonna lie,
I can be a nasty guy
So you should probably sit
Cause yeah my words come kinda quick
And if you don't get it let me repeat it, just forget what you thought

Only see what I let you see
Over and over again
What you say is nothing new to me
Honestly

They say that kid he's got soul
I'm everywhere that you go
And I've been there, seen that, and I ain't taking you home
No-o-o
But what do they know?
I'm everywhere that you go (and I still got soul)
And I've been there, seen that, and I ain't taking you home
No-o-o

Oh

(Yeah, yeah Travis Here we go!)

They say that kid he's got more soul than Flight Club
Can't you tell by the way I use my wall?
Travis stay way cooler than the hand that lose that
Yeah bite too many times worse than my bark
Yeah, took a little time but I'm finally here
Ten years deep just to make things clear
Now I'm doubled up throwing double D's in the air
Go get it off your chest like a tight brassiere
Don't regret it
Just let it
Give credit
Don't sweat it

You can try but you just can't stop,
Fangs up
Cobra style

Honestly

They say that kid he's got soul
I'm everywhere that you go
And I've been there, seen that, and I ain't taking you home
No
But what do they know?
I'm everywhere that you go (and I still got soul)
And I've been there, seen that, and I ain't taking you home
No





I'm everywhere that you go
And I've been there, seen that and I ain't taking you home

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Cobra Starship's 2009 hit 'Kiss My Sass' reflect a sense of confidence and defiance. The song seems to be a response to the criticism or judgment that lead vocalist Gabe Saporta may have faced from fans or the media. The chorus states, "They say that kid he's got soul, I'm everywhere that you go, and I've been there, seen that, and I ain't taking you home." This line suggests that people may be talking about him, but Saporta doesn't want to hear it. His soul defines him as an artist, and he's not interested in taking anyone home or entertaining their opinions.


Saporta also implies that people only see what he wants them to see. "Only see what I let you see," he sings repeatedly. This line suggests that there is more to him than what people believe, and he's not going to reveal it all. The song's title 'Kiss My Sass' is a further statement on this, implying that he's unapologetically confident and sassiness is his power.


Overall, 'Kiss My Sass' is an anthem of self-love and confidence, which encourages listeners to be unapologetically themselves.


Line by Line Meaning

I'm bringing sassy back, And everything that you thought you can't forget Cause y'all know nothing but my name And I don't wanna hear About people I don't know Not you, not him, not her, no
I am reintroducing attitude into this situation, and every aspect that you believed was unforgettable. The only thing you understand about me is my name, so don't bother telling me about strangers that are irrelevant to me.


You only see what I let you see, Nothing less, nothing more What you say is nothing new to me Honestly
You are only witnessing what I permit you to see, nothing beyond or below that level. You aren't telling me anything I haven't heard repeatedly, to be honest.


They say that kid he's got soul I'm everywhere that you go And I've been there, seen that, and I ain't taking you home No-o-o
You've been hearing that individual has a substantial amount of spirit, and I am present in every place you visit. I've experienced all of the things you have and won't be accompanying you back to your residence.


And I ain't gonna lie, I can be a nasty guy So you should probably sit Cause yeah my words come kinda quick And if you don't get it let me repeat it, just forget what you thought
I won't deceive you, I can be quite unpleasant at times. You should probably remain still, because I tend to speak rapidly. If you didn't comprehend, allow me to reiterate and discard your previous assumptions.


Only see what I let you see Over and over again What you say is nothing new to me Honestly
You are solely exposed to what I allow you to see, repeatedly. Your input isn't anything novel to me, honestly.


But what do they know? I'm everywhere that you go (and I still got soul) And I've been there, seen that, and I ain't taking you home No-o-o
But what do those people know? I follow you everywhere (and still have spirit). I have experienced all of the events you have and won't be going home with you.


They say that kid he's got more soul than Flight Club Can't you tell by the way I use my wall? Travis stay way cooler than the hand that lose that Yeah bite too many times worse than my bark
That person has more energy than Flight Club. Can't you understand that from how I use my wall? The individual named Travis is exceedingly calm even after financial loss. My words are quite fierce compared to my attitude.


Yeah, took a little time but I'm finally here Ten years deep just to make things clear Now I'm doubled up throwing double D's in the air Go get it off your chest like a tight brassiere
It took a little while, but I have finally arrived. I have been involved in this activity for ten years to clarify the situation. Presently, I am throwing up double D's in the air. Speak your mind, freeing it like a tight brassiere.


Don't regret it Just let it Give credit Don't sweat it
Don't be sorry about it, just let it out. Give respect where it is due but don't worry too much about it.


You can try but you just can't stop, Fangs up Cobra style
You can attempt to halt me, but you won't succeed. Fangs up, employing a strategy characteristic of a cobra.


I'm everywhere that you go And I've been there, seen that and I ain't taking you home
I follow you everywhere and have experienced everything you have, but won't be accompanying you back home.

Adoro essa música, muito boa pra ouvir nos fones ❤

Recuerdo la primera vez que los vi en el TRL por MTV en el 2008, ¡Viva La Cobra! me trae muy buenos recuerdos en mis primeros años de universidad. Una lastima que se disolvieran, excelente banda.

Han pasado 84 años ;'c

The academy is... también fué una buena banda. Lástima que todo se fué por la borda, a excepción de William Beckett que sigue cómo solista (casado y con una hija y al parecer ya ganó peso), pero no es muy reconocido mundialmente al igual que Gabe saporta.
Me gustaría ver un dúo o dónde hagan música ambos.

Rei

I LOVE this song. Cobra Starship is so .. I don't even know I'm at a loss for words.
